GMS has been doing music most of his life. Born into a family of musicians in Brooklyn, he has played keys, Flute and other instruments since a child. Born in the 70’s and coming of age in the 80’s and 90’s, he likes to say “Me and Hip Hop grew up together.”
G has been one-third of the group HYDRA and a co-founder of the crew The PLAGUE since the 1990’s where he first started earning respect on the NYC Independent Music scene, Hosting, DJing and performing with HYDRA and The PLAGUE in countless shows, as well as making his presence felt in cyphers and in the Freestyle Battle scene. GMS was one of the original participants in the legendary Lyricist Lounge, Braggin’ Rites, Rocky LaMontagne’s monthly ALL THAT and WORDS! events at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. He was featured in the documentary film FREESTYLE: The Art of Rhyme, featured on MTV, VH1 and BET, as well as the Grammy award winning Dutch TV show KIKA NEW YORK and several other documentaries about Hip Hop and Martial Arts (another of his passions).
In the 2010 HYDRA formed MCMI Inc as a vehicle to produce events, sell Hip Hop apparel and release music as MCMI Records. Life-long friend and musical collaborator Robert PH (Pumpkinhead) Diaz became a partner in MCMI Records, releasing music through the label and introducing new artists like Chordz Cordero to the world. When PH passed away in 2015, GMS was the first to get the heart-wrenching call from his widow. All of MCMI has dealt with the devastating loss of their crew member, business partner and best friend, by helping to carry on PH’s legacy.
Besides producing music and events. GMS also writes, composes, teaches music privately and is certified as a NYC DOE teacher, School Building Leader and Educational Technology Specialist, currently working at Arts & Letters 305 United, in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn.
In 2016 he formed an educational nonprofit called STAIRS ACADEMY, which is working to create innovative public schools in NY, has an active Education & Technology Internship program and is currently developing an extended day online learning platform.
When he is not doing music, teaching or or working on his nonprofit org, GMS video blogs about Education, Technology, Health and Martial Arts on his CYBERSKY VIDEOS channel and about MUSIC on the MCMI REPORT.
